Shilo has kindly answered a few questions for us here:
*How long have you been making cards?
I first started papercrafting about 10 years ago...and I was intent on the fact that I was a scrapbooker NOT a cardmaker!....somewhere along the line I made my first card...and got hooked! I would say I've been at it now for at least 6 years.
*Can you describe your cardmaking style?
I would say that my cards are pretty eclectic. I can go from simple & clean lines to fancy & girly. For the most part I create somewhere in the middle. I tend to use lots of layers with lots of patterns.
*Where do you find your inspiration?
I spend a fair amount of time on Pinterest. Tons & tons of ideas on there...so many talented people. I also visit the 2peas gallery daily...I actually feel like I'm missing something if I miss a day in their gallery....silly right?? But I also find inspiration from paper.....I love mixing and matching patterns and colors..and that will often be my jumping off point. Or from a stamp I just have to use!
*What embellishments and techniques do you love to use?
I tend to use a lot of spellbinders dies on my cards, plus machine sewing, stamps, distress ink & dimensional adhesive. Buttons, ribbon, photo corners & paper doilies seem to keep showing up in my cards a lot lately.
*What is your favourite colour combination?
I can't say that I have a color combo that I go to repeatedly...hmmm.....I love bright colors! I seem to be creating lots lately with a rainbow color scheme. I also love kraft....with almost every color.
*What other paper crafts do you enjoy doing?
I scrapbook, create mini albums and I have a new found love for creating banners.
